Rose blossoms as Academy take points - 6 Aug 2011 - Women's Football NewsDoncaster Rovers Belles 1 (O'Gorman 31)
Bristol Academy 2 (McCatty 17, Rose 52)

A stunning second half strike from defender Jemma Rose proved decisive as Bristol Academy beat Doncaster Rovers Belles 2-1 in a keenly fought contest at the Keepmoat Stadium. 
Rose struck after full back Grace McCatty had given Academy an 18th minute lead only for Belles striker Aine O'Gorman to restore parity just after the half hour mark.
In an entertaining opening both sides looked lively but it was the home side that threatened first.
Precious Hamilton scampered down the Bristol left before cutting inside Katie Daley and producing a stinging effort that forced a fine save from Siobhan Chamberlain.
Academy hit back and fashioned a chance of their own immediately after. Lillie Billson outmuscled Rhonda Jones on the edge of the Doncaster area but her low shot was repelled by the legs of Belles keeper Mary Earps.
The visitors were beginning to assert authority on the contest and deservedly went ahead on 18 minutes. Smart build up play in the Doncaster half culminated in Katie Daley teeing up McCatty to strike a sweet shot into the top right hand corner from 25 yards for her fourth goal of the season.
Bristol should have been further ahead six minutes later as Billson sent Jessica Fishlock through but the usually prolific striker placed her effort narrowly wide.
At the other end striker O'Gorman tested Chamberlain before levelling the contest on 32 minutes. Jones rampaged forward from right back before delivering a deep cross that eventually found O'Gorman who chested down to fire home off the underside of the bar.
After the restart Bristol threatened throughout and the decisive moment duly arrived on 52 minutes as Rose stepped up to strike home an unstoppable set piece following a foul on Fishlock.
The win keeps Academy on course for a mid-table finish and also brought them their first 'double' of the season. The Belles meanwhile remain rooted in the bottom two with only three matches left to play. 
Doncaster Rovers Belles: Mary Earps, Rhonda Jones, Shelly Cox, Katie Holtham, Victoria Williams, Kasia Lipka (sub Kylla Sjoman 11mins), Abbie Prosser, Vicky Exley, Aine O'Gorman, Julia Scott (sub Jess Sigsworth 59mins), Precious Hamilton (sub Beth England 39mins).

Bristol Academy: Siobhan Chamberlain, Grace McCatty, Alex Culvin, Corinne Yorston, Jade Radburn, Jemma Rose, Lillie Billson (sub Loren Dykes 82mins), Katie Daley, Ann Marie Heatherson (sub Helen Bleazard 69mins), Jessica Fishlock (sub Alex Windell 90mins), Anouk Hoogendijk.
